Clouds over Connemara, black and white photography, Donal Kelly

The Scale of our skies: Cumulus clouds drift in over Recess, Connemara

The mind chooses to ignore the scale of the sky. It is being scanned and sampled out and rarely stared at. The skies here, out beyond the Inagh Valley, somewhere on a pathless bog off the N59 near Lutty, are ever-changing, restless, a canvas for whatever weather systems are jostling in from the Atlantic. Right then, a huge cumulus cloud was floating into the frame, dwarfing the mountains below, which themselves reached over distant houses.

Exposure: handheld, I think f8, maybe 1/250. I think I had a polarizer, but didn’t keep any notes.
